    Bectons issues are not related to him getting rolled up. His recovery timetable and his desire to get back- probably..but this past injury? Nah. Taking himself out of games last year is a much bigger flag than a freak injury where he got rolled up.

    In general, the guy is undependable and even the most rational supporter must believe he would be hard pressed to make it through an entire 17 game season unscathed.  High ceiling low floor = big risk.  And here we are.

    Most athletic linemen are built this way. Not many NFL linemen with cankles.

    The reason he was hyped was because of his unusual frame.  Very big up top, very athletic at the bottom, ran fast at the combine for an enormous mountain, freakish speed and size, etc.  What we know now is what the rest of the league knows-  traditional lower/squattier linemen are successful and last a long time in this league and anomalies like Becton don't.

    Joe Douglas is conservative with his free agent money and a miser with his draft capital, but he is the most high-risk wheeler-dealer GM we've ever seen.  He thinks he can outsmart the league at every turn.  He picks up other team's castoff flawed players, drafts high ceiling/low floor types in the 1st round, has a fetish for tiny RB's and WR's, and ignores injury histories.  Douglas is bizarre.  Like someone who buys a cheap used car with bad handling and weak brakes and drives it like a maniac because he thinks he's a better driver than he is.

    Aren’t teams allowed one retro helmet this season?  Maybe it’s white lids to go with our QB. 

    No, that is for the 2022 season where one alternate helmet is allowed per team.

    If the Jets are going to roll with one, the submission to the league was due this past July 31. Woody teased a tweet that made it pretty clear we are going to have a black alternate helmet next year. It seems that is what was submitted.

    Please be 80’s uniforms!!!!     

    That is a violation of NFL policy and will be called out as such.  Don’t do it again.

    The carefully worded tweet says “new combo“. It is going to be a new combination of the existing uniform and we know the jersey will be white. So it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out we are going with a half white half black look.

    It makes me a little sad that the Jets had an actual QB whisperer as their head coach and they never gave him a chance to pick his quarterback, but they let the underwhelming 49ers DB coach hand-pick one at 2 overall. Seems like a missed opportunity, 

    Had the Jets left Gase and White alone, we would be in playoff position right now with a ridiculously easy schedule ahead.

    Instead, they let Sideshow Bob draft Mighty Mouse and set us back at least two years.

    I’ve been saying this in other threads, total waste of rosters spots and resources. JD has no idea what he’s doing. They lucked into Mike White.

    It’s even better. Joe Douglas cut Mike White three times last year and thought so little of him that he begged the Eagles for Joe Flacco. 

    Can you imagine the uproar if Mike Maccagnan did this? John Idzik? But because it’s Sideshow Joe, they let it slide…

    Listening to Michael Kay right now.  NY media so ridiculous.   Blaming Jets for not knowing how good Mike White was and saying we shouldn't have traded for Flacco

    That is absolutely the right take.  Joe Douglas is such a bad evaluator of talent he thought Joe Flacco was worth a 5th rounder with Mike White under his nose.   He’s an astoundingly bad GM.

    Is this a schtick or are you genuinely this miserable?  

    If the Jets truly make you this miserable I suggest you take up another interest like badminton or chess or basket weaving.

    I am miserable because we lose too much. In order to make that miserable feeling stop, we have to have the right executive in the front office. Someone who can pick the right players. There is very little indicating that Joe Douglas is that executive.

    You mean the WR's that Joe Douglas placed on this roster?

    Things are not as bad as you were telling us things were going to be. Heck, you did not have the Jets winning another game this year.

    So why, should we believe anything you try to tell us? Your average on this site is akin to Kevin Youklis with the Yankees.

    Confused as to why you think you're entitled to a victory lap because a backup quarterback that Joe Douglas cut three times last year and passed on for Joe Flacco and a draft pick just last week turns out to be the best player Joe Douglas ever brought to Florham Park.

    The Mike White misread is just another in a long line of his catastrophically bad decisions in the last 30 months.
